It may have to do with something from the TF2 update props and stuff.
Here's a list and a guide with step by steps on how to possibly fix the stalling update/download for Dota 2 client. • Clearing out the Dota 2 files from your depotcache folder.
I do not take credit for the guide as most of the fixes have been a community effort I have just typed it up nicely for those who are experiencing difficulties.
- Refreshing the and files in your steam folder - To refresh these files you must first exit steam completely, then go into your steam directory (defaulted to C:/Program Files/Steam). DO NOT DELETE THIS FILE as it is recommended not to delete the as it may be used later to determine recurring issues.The 2nd part to this is the approximate speed, I can't confirm this but have heard changing the speed can also help although I am unsure how this would occur.On the same tab you can see the approximate speed which you can change people have stated changing this has allowed them to get past the stuck download. - Clearing out the Dota 2 Files from the depocache folder - If your still continuing to have issues downloading dota 2 or updating dota 2 where it stalls at the same spot every time after the above fixes your next step is to remove the depocache files as they are what is most likely causing it to stall.Click the local files tab and you should see an option to verify integrity of game cache.Wait for this to complete and then resume your download.
